Mikel Aristegui

Working on a short soundtrack for a performance of Mikel Aristegui again. He will perform it in San Sebastian, where I am looking forward to visit in the end of this year, for a next premier of Mikel I make the music for. Update about that will come later.

HAB Choir

I am working on a choir arrangement for the Hungarian choir HAB, I’m looking forward to hear them singing it in Budapest end of April.

Soundtrack BIRD & CAGE

I made a new mix of the soundtrack I produced earlier this year for the video projection of Bird & Cage. This was a short video installation by Louis Bruno and Agnes Kelm, presenting the abstract idea of a bird and a cage by incorporating the works of Yayoi Kusama and Francis Bacon along the personalities of the two creators.

Conduction Series – Kodály

For the 135th anniversary of the Hungarian composer, ethnomusicologist and pedagogue Zoltán Kodály´s birthday, a four-member vocal ensemble and a solo-cellist will join CHB Orchestra. The thirteen musicians will embed Kodály´s cello sonatas and vocal pieces in an unusual contemporary musical environment with the conduction of Samu Gryllus. The concert takes place in Collegium Hungaricum Berlin on 27th October, after a 10 days preparation period in the residency program of the institute.

Performing Space III workshop

Performing Space is back in 2017 again, the five-days workshop provides research-based practical tools to deal with the multimedia aspect of dance and movement theatre conceptually, and in realisation of a piece. The compositional focus of the work-week facilitates the deep analysis of the architectural, sonic and emotional aspects of space for performing artists.

Performing Space is led by Emese Csornai, light designer with visual arts background, together with Gabor Csongradi musician and composer. For more info check www.emesecsornai.com.
